Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
by M. Kuno
Number of pages: 246
This set of lecture notes about nanoscience and nanotechnology should explain to the student some of the underlying concepts behind "nano". The motivation for this was to describe to the student the physics behind each concept or assumption commonly encountered in the nano literature rather than just providing a qualitative overview of developments in the field.

The main purpose of this book is to describe important issues in various types of devices ranging from conventional transistors to molecular electronic devices whose fabrication and operation is discussed in the last few chapters of the book.
by Eric Drexler - Anchor
This book heralds the new age of nanotechnology, which will give us thorough and inexpensive control of the structure of matter. Drexler examines the enormous implications of these developments for medicine, the economy, and the environment.
